Hi Natalie…we had the inground petsafe fence and it worked great. We just moved…but have a very small lot. We have 3 dogs and are currently leashing. Even tho we brought the transmitter with us, the lot is too small. So we are looking at the wireless unit….Am I still able to use the same collars? Thanks for your help :)

The best wireless electric fences can support a minimum of two receivers, allowing you to contain two or more dogs with the use of just one transmitter. Your package however will only come with one receiver, so if you have more than one dog you’ll have to buy the additional receiver separately. Also, quality manufacturers will include two different sets of pins for the receiver: one pair for long-haired dogs, and another for short-haired dogs. Additionally, good collars/receivers will be water-proof as well.Worried about keeping your dog safe in your yard? A PetSafe wireless dog fence may be the best option for your pet and there is no digging involved. Before you begin, select a unit that is right for your pet and your yard. This PetSafe fence is made for dogs over 8lbs. and covers about half an acre of land. Proper training of your pet is essential for the success of the pet fence.

Pick a location for the transmitter. The location must have access to an indoor power outlet and the temperature needs to stay above freezing. Locate it on the first floor of your house in the middle of your dogs roaming area. Large metal objects can interfere with the signal, so keep it away from furnaces and refrigerators.

Plug the transmitter in, set the boundary switch to high and set the boundary control up to 8. Install the battery in the collar. Activate the static correction signal, if desired. Set up the perimeter. Hold the collar where you want the perimeter to be, and have a friend turn the dial on the transmitter until the collar beeps. Place flags where the collar beeps to visually mark the perimeter.

Fit the collar on your dog, ensuring the contact points touch your dog's skin. Tighten the collar until you can fit one finger in between the contact point and your pet's neck. Properly training your pet to stay within the boundaries of your new wireless dog fence is crucial to your pet's safety and success in using the fence. For more how to content, visit .

Or head to our channel: Finally, the best wireless fences for dogs / pets come with motion-sensing technology (). This technology can detect whether your dog is moving or not, and if it isn’t – it will shut down to conserve batteries. Once your pet starts moving again the collar will immediately detect that and reactivate.The Wireless Containment System covers a circular area of up to 180 feet in diameter, providing ample room for dogs to explore and enjoy the outdoors in a safe environment. For dogs 8 lbs. and over with a neck size of up to 28 inches, this wireless system comes complete with training flags, an easy-to-install receiver, and a collar. The collar receives a signal from the transmitter when the dog approaches the boundary and delivers either an audible warning or a shock. This model is particularly popular because, unlike many other models, it is not limited to only one or two collars.
